    Average - not worth the money
    Shannon_D
    , Aug 2022
    The tour was fine, our driver was friendly. However, part of the reason we chose this tour was due to the wine tasting. We were given only 3 red wines to try and were told that the other ones (e.g. whites/rose) had not been opened so they weren't available to try. Our driver asked after if we tried the cheese and which white wines we preferred as previous tours got to try this, we let him know they didn't let us try any or provide it. I have been on another tour previously which included a wine tasting, this was a very disappointing one especially considering the price. Also, it would be great if the drivers were able to speak just a little bit more english so we were able to ask a few more questions about this history & towns.

    This was probably the best tour we did while in italy. My friend and I were picked up in a very nice black Mercedes van by the nicest guide named Fabio from “I just drive” and ended up being the only people on the tour. Our guide new everything about the Tuscany landscape and details about each town, but most importantly treated us like VIP. He was so fun and friendly, and completely tailored our experience to our preferences. The semi-private is WELL worth the little extra it costs to be comfortable on such a long day trip! We were so glad we didn’t hop on the charter bus tour.. Fabio first took us to the hill overlooking Florence to take photos then went to San Gimignano and lastly Siena with a quick stop in Monteriggioni on the way. Siena by far was our favorite! The streets and shops are beautiful in both San Gimignano and Siena but Siena was just magical. A beautiful dome church and unbelievable medieval buildings at each turn. Looked exactly like where the twilight movie was filmed (in “volterra”) and they happened to have a Ferrari car show that day so it was even more amazing. Last we stopped at a family owned organic winery in Tuscany for a tour and tasting of wine and the best figs and cheeses we’d ever had! They had the most beautiful views overlooking the Chianti/Tuscany hills. Finally when Fabio dropped us back at our hotel he gave us a nice bottle of Prosecco to end the tour. Thank you Fabio and I just drive for making our experience so magical

    My friend and I were the only 2 people on the tour and it was amazing. We got to see San Gimgnano, Siena, Monteriggioni, and enjoy some organic wine at a winery. Daniel was great. He picked us up on time, gave us tips on the places we visited, and was very informative. I highly recommend this tour!

    Overall the tour was a good experience. But not a 5 star. LIKES: Small group setting; time to explore own your own, see 3 places in one day. Transportation was in a nice Mercedes Van; new and great air conditioning. DISLIKES: you are at the mercy of the other guests to stay on time. one couple was 25 min late to our meeting time and that really pushed the rest of our trip to be rushed. Also if you have pre-planned exactly what you want to see in Sienna you can spend all you time wandering about and not have time to see anything. Our Wine Tour was very informative and in a nice setting but we did not get out of the building to see any views. Maybe because we were pushed on time but we really would have liked to had photos of rolling tuscan hills from a winery during our tour. Our tour guide was nice and gave a bit of history to things, but could have pointed us to specific directions in Sienna so that we made better use of our short time there.

    This was a wonderful tour, a lot more than we expected. Our driver Daniel was very knowledgeable of sights, history, and wines that went with certain foods. His recommendation if it was on our to do list was Chianti Classico with a steak ❤️❤️ We highly recommend this tour and Daniel.

    This is a must do if you want to see a bit of Tuscany when visiting Florence. The perfect amount of exploration and driving for a day in the countryside. The three city visit ended with a great wine tasting. When in Siena I would highly recommend lunch here Osteria Da Divo for a little truffle pasta. Delizioso!

    We could not have enjoyed our day more! Our driver was knowledgeable and friendly. The three stops were perfect, broke up the ride so we never felt we were in the car too long. We were lucky to be joined by a nice couple as well. The winery was lovely. It was a beautiful day!

    Book this tour!!! This was one of my favorite days of our whole two week trip through Italy and Greece. Our tour guide, Daniel, was AMAZING. He was friendly, entertaining, and shared a lot of good information. The van was very comfortable. Daniel also gave us each an iPad with service so that we could use maps and find out way around the towns. We were in San Gimignano for an hour, Sienna for 1.5/2 hours, and Monteriggioni for only 20 minutes we were running a bit late and needed to by at the winery by a certain time. This was not a big deal because the town was tiny - just enough time to get some great pictures and head to have some great wine. Apparently there are 2 different wineries you could visit depending on availability - if you are able to go to San Michele A Torri then you get to go to the less touristy one. Great wine and beautiful location. All in all this was a fantastic tour and we would recommend!

    for starters the mercedes sedan is not comfortable for 8 people sitting 3 beside.driver was not informative during the drive and not helpful suggesting restaurants in siena.did not appreciate being shunted to tourist restaurants in the siena main square.finally winery did not offer any tour to vinyard or celler.driver was pleasant and was kind enough to drop us off by our apt.in summation have been on better tours from previous visits.this was the priciest of all the tours i have taken out of florence with the least value for the money spent.

    This was a wonderful way to see some of Tuscany and visit Siena. Our tour guide was, personalble, knowledgable and entertaining. We were part of very small group and felt that all got very personal attention. The wine tasting and tour of the winery was great. And the wine, snacks more like a small meal were wonderful as was the hostess at the winery. Would recommend it to friends and family and will when any of them visit Florence.

    Daniel was a gentleman and a great host, introducing us to the Tuscan region. He had great recommendations at each stop and even better recommendations outside of the trip as well. Lovely adventure, introducing the three towns and a winery. Unfortunatethe wine tour was shortened due to harvest.

    This was a very enjoyable experience. Our driver and guide, Leonardo, was from Florence and very proud of his city and country. he went out of his way to show us many different sites along our drive as well as tidbits of history. He was very good about going over where he would leave us and then retrieve us as we visited 3 different towns and also stopped for a wine tasting. He really made the day great and the scenery was spectacular.

    This was a great tour because it is a tour of some interesting towns and villages ending with one winery stop. If you want a wine tour, don't book this one. If you want to get a taste of Chianti country - this is for you. Driver was first-rate as was his vehicle. The winery was OK.

    We had the best day with our driver and guide Daniel! He was not only knowledgeable, but he took us to some of the most beautiful little towns - experiences you just don't get when you only visit the big cities. We quickly became best buds with our travel companions and will never do another large bus tour again there were no roll calls in the middle of the street on this trip! great wine tasting at a gorgeous Tuscan vineyard too - one of our holiday highlights for sure!
